This episode of Kilometre 0 features Phil Anderson, the first Australian – in fact, the first non-European – to wear the yellow jersey at the Tour de France.

Anderson describes the day early in his debut Tour in 1981 when the race entered the Pyrenees and he found himself climbing with the best in the world.

We also hear from former pro rider, race organiser and journalist John Trevorrow, journalist Rupert Guinness and Orica-Scott sports director Matt White.

Kilometre 0 is supported by Nederburg Wines.
